At yesterday's urgent care visit, I learned some things: taking random collections of medicines to get through the work week can fuck with your blood pressure to the point where doctors become awfully concerned, sinus pressure can impact your eyes, expiration dates are legit. #xp
At peak pain, the only thing that could offer any relief was the hottest shower I could stand blasting directly on the right side of my face for 5 to 10 minutes. With that, I'd get 1-2 hours of rest. You can't imagine what about a dozen hot showers a day does to your skin. #xp
The upsides to this most recent adventure are: I can see clearly out of my right eye again, I'm at a "normal" level of sinus pain, and I feel more or less human for the first time in about 2 weeks. I can't wait to join normal quarantine activities! #xp
